“In order to win, you have to dope”
Lance Armstrong, biggest sports hypocrite of the millennium.
Liar, liar, testicle crushing spandex bicycle shorts on fire!
You know what? He’s probably right. And it isn’t just bicycle racing and the Tour de Farce, it’s all sports. How many times do we have to go through this? How many times will the baseball Hall of Fame have to put the snoot on an entire generation of players (yeah, and you too Barry B) because they’re all doped to Hell and back? How many Congressional Investigations, as if it’s any of their business in the first place? Give it up already.
I’ll give you a choice. Either let them all drug themselves as much as they want, blood dope, steroids, speed, whatever ... or keep them all in hermetically sealed environments. Either way, they’re all performing monkeys for our entertainment. And nobody really gives a damn if the monkey gets broken. There’s always another monkey ready to replace him. Or her.
And because of the doping ... this is why the Olympics should only be open to people over the age of 21. Or maybe 23.
And do we really need an olympics as it is now held?
I haven’t had much time with regard to the doping thing except for some newspaper coverage on Armstrong, and something in today’s paper about a college football player and a bogus story. He plays for Notre Dame. So then, what is the reference to the Baseball Hall of Fame remark? That’s new to me. What happened?
Oh, I kind of like watching the olympics, especially the summer ones, though the coverage has become progressively (hehe) suckier. I don’t, however, care about numbers and records and all that, just like watching the less usual things. So, the first bicyclist on the moon did something reprehensible? Yawn. Wake me when it matters.
Apparently, the baseball hall of fame turned its nose up at some players who had themselves doped up. Barry something and a couple of others. I’m not good with names. They woke me up for that?
Exactly. There were ZERO players admitted to the Hall this year. None. Because of juicing.
I wonder what sort of cover up the frogs would have tried if he was french? it must be one of the simplest events to drug monitor and they would if they wanted to eh?
I think I heard that 17 of the last 32 Tour de Fwance winners were all busted for doping. Looks to me like bicycle racing is just as corrupt as pro ball.
Come on ,its all Bread and Circuses anyway,and it beats warring as a national pastime,locally that is.
